The Functional Assessment Course bridges the gap between traditional orthopaedic assessments and functional movements that are performed by our patients during their daily activities. This course uses evidence based functional movement strategies and assessments on the M.A.T (Movement Assessment Tool) to set movement baselines, calculate injury risk and track treatment progression over time.

Why do our Functional Assessment Course?
The Functional Treatment + Training Course course is the ultimate game changer for health and movement professionals. We will help you integrate the latest knowledge from movement, neuroscience and pain science fields to fill gaps in rehabilitation education as taught by higher institutions.
For too long health and movement professionals have looked at body parts in isolation without considering how we integrate as a whole in movement. In this course, we will show you how to break any task down into the 8 fundamental movements we all perform daily whilst providing you with principles, strategies and an evidence based template to create movement capacity (strength, stamina etc), movement competency (skill) and movement variability (different angles, heights, distances, loads, speed etc) to rehabilitate and bridge the gap between injury and performance.
